Five large zeppelin hangers stocked full of meat, fish, cheese, vegetables, and almost everything you might need for cooking.

There is a particular vitality to Riga’s central market that can’t be found anywhere else. It hangs in the air, is swallowed up by fresh produce, is caught up in the noise of people, is passed from earth-stained hand to hand, is turned into music, turned back into smell, into life. The market’s energy could kill the grimmest day and lift the spirits of any lonely tourist.
